In a quasi-synchronous reverse link multicarrier code division multiple access system, the signal detection is vulnerable to the interference due to the insufficient guard interval. A multiuser detection with intersymbol interference cancellation is a potential solution to overcome this problem. In this paper, we proposes a parameter acquisition technique based on a specially designed training sequence for the receiver. The concerned parameters are the transformed signature sequences and the ISI generation sequences. We analyze a criterion for the training sequences to achieve the minimum mean square error and propose the systematic generation of the optimum training sequences. We also propose the noise variance estimator for providing information about noise variance to some classes of multiuser detection. Simulation results prove relevant benefits of the proposed techniques and give useful insights into the system designs.
